I was using echolink which worked perfectly with a dial up connection.  I have since changed to jet stream and having nothing but problems trying to connect.  Have run the echolink troubleshooter which says "UDP 5198 test failed".  There is obviously a firewall problem within computer.  Am running windows firewall and have gone to stage of temporarily disconnecting firewall however problem remains.
Anybody got any idea's?

If you are hooked to a router, it could be the firewall in the router.  Or it could be a firewall at your ISP.  For the former, you can just have it give Echolink the appropriate access.  For the latter, you may or may not get satisfaction from your ISP.

Also Eddie, if you're interested. I've got the ARRL's VoIP book (New $17.95 USD) if you'd like to have it. If you can get a sturdy 8-1/2" x 11" or so envelope to me with the proper postage to get to you it's yours for free. Although the double postage may be high. I don't know. Email if interested.

Hello,

Echolink requires that your allow UDP port forwarding
on ports 5198 and 5199.  It appears you still have
some sort of firewall whether internal on PC or
external from your ISP that needs to be tweaked to
allow port forwarding on these two ports.

From your comment, JetStream is ADSL connection?

Check to see if your ADSL modem is also serving as a
router/firewall. If it is, you'll have to make sure it
is forwarding those same to UDP ports.
